My new light fixture is really showing its stuff. A few anachris have grown 6"+ since I put it on my DT. That's the kind of signs I was hoping to see.

Quite a few plants are out due to the egging my Moors went thru. Should be able to get then back in next week though and see more results.

I know, I was joking about that too. I have noticed that the fishies are munching their favs more the past couple days too.

The light is running great, but I'm ready to make a couple up grades to this already. One being a cooling fan and incorporating a couple of LED moonlights.

Moonlights would be a cool addition! As far as a cooling fan, IIRC, Big Al's sells some that you can attach to the top of the fixture.

How are your plants doing under the new lights?

Yeah, I want to try them out see what it's like. Great tip on the cooling fans McLumpy, I'll check them out. Thanks!

Plants (tank too) are in shreads after the breeding frenzy that they had, so some are in with the fry and some are being rehomed to the Betta tank I'm in the middle of aqua-scaping. I have a build thread if you wnt to check it out.

I just wanted to add that I have the 4x 55w kit that I bought 3 or 4 years ago and it still runs like a champ. I highly recommend these to anyone wanting to upgrade their lighting. They are pretty simple to put together as long as you have common sense.
